South Korean Ambassador to the Philippines Han Dong-Man expressed hope that there would soon be direct flights between Iloilo and South Korea.
Visitor arrivals from South Korea are among the top source markets of both the city and province of Iloilo.
It’s about time, according to Han, for airline companies to open direct flights from South Korea to Iloilo, vice versa.
Han said having direct flights from their country would encourage more Koreans to visit Iloilo, thus “boosting your international tourist arrivals here.”
He believed that Iloilo has a lot offer in terms of tourism.
The Korean envoy was in Iloilo on Jan. 27 for the city’s celebration of the 51st Dinagyang Festival.IMT
